Terror Trax: Cadaveria

TerrorTrax

Hello HorrorAddicts, recently we had the pleasure to interview Cadaveria. They are best described as a Horror Metal band with a blend of Black, Death, and Gothic Metal.

How did the band Cadaveria come together?

cadaveria-2016I founded the band with drummer Marçelo Santos in 2001. The band represents a virtual space where we can freely express ourselves through music and visual arts, since we care also about the band image, artworks and music videos. In these 15 years we have released five full length albums and a double DVD. Recently we entered the studios with legendary thrash metal act Necrodeath to give life to Mondoscuro EP.

What did you do before Cadaveria ?

For nine years (1992-2001) I have been the singer of pagan black metal band mondoscuroOpera IX.

What bands influenced you?

I grew up listening to rock music and I discovered heavy metal in 1990. Mercyful Fate, Holy Moses, My Dying Bride and the old school Norwegian black metal were my first passions.

What inspires you?

Everything can inspire me: my life, the experiences I do, people I meet, movies, art exhibitions, the book I read, the countries I visit. I write about my thoughts, my dreams and nightmares.

How would you best describe your music?

cadaveria-pic01Our music is a strange mix of black metal, gothic metal with doom and death metal influences. After the release of our previous album entitled The Shadows’ Madame fans and critics started to label our style as horror metal, for the sinister and gloomy atmospheres evoked by our songs. Basically this definition means all and nothing, that’s why we like it and we chose it as the title of our fourth record. The truth is that we play what we like and feel without following any trend.

What is the creative process like when you write music?

The lyrics come quite spontaneously. I’m used to write down short phrases that come to my mind, sensations, my believes, my mental flow. Then I reorganize them in a proper lyric and I merge this with music. Guitarist Dick Laurent is the main responsible for creating the riffs. We work together to create the songs structure, then other band members add their own touch.

Could you tell us about your latest EP Mondoscuro?

Cadaveria and Necrodeath share two band members (Flegias, their vocalist is our drummer Marçelo Santos – GL is the bassist of both the bands, even if in Cadaveria he uses peter Dayton as nickname) and have been in close contact for many years. A cooperation between us was in our thoughts since long time but we never made it for one reason or another. Finally last year Marçelo Santos came up with the idea to release something together. In the beginning it was supposed to be a simple split, but while the production was going on we enriched the track list with two songs composed and played together and we also covered each other. Mondoscuro was released on September the 2nd on CD via Black Tears lavel; a vinyl edition will see the light by the end of this year via Sleaszy Rider records. The EP features six songs: Mater Tenebrarum (by Necrodeath) performed by Cadaveria (guesting Lindsay Schoolcraft from Cradle of Filth), Spell (one of our hits) covered by Necrodeath, two new tracks composed together (Dominion of Pain and Rise Above), Cadaveria’s cover of Christian Woman (Type O Negative) and Necrodeath’s cover of Helter Skelter (The Beatles). The EP title refers to the cinematographic genre “Mondo film” of explicit documentaries, born in the 60s and depicting sensational, bloody and shocking scenes. Mondoscuro also clearly recalls Mondocane project, the legendary collaboration of Necrodeath and Schizo from which the album “Mondocane: Project One” was born in 1989. As the explicit artwork suggests, Mondoscuro is meant as a unique chapter in the bands’ careers, a birth and a death at the same time. A release that will soon become a rarity and collectible for our fans.
